Storyline

A state investigation centers on Mike Finney, a former racketeer who hasn't violated the law since moving to Hawaii nine years earlier. But Charles Irwin, an ambitious counsel for a state legislative committee, sees the probe as a way to further his political ambitions. For Five-O, the case begins when there is an apparent attempt on Irwin's life. McGarrett, who knows Finney, is also a target of Irwin. Meanwhile, the "syndicate" on the mainland, nervous that Finney is being investigated, sends a hitman to Hawaii to kill Finney. Written by Bill Koenig

Pretty exciting.

James Gregory stars as Mike Finney, an ex-criminal who has given up the life of crime and made a success of himself in Hawaii. However, despite keeping his nose clean and being a model citizen, a hot-shot who has his eyes set on becoming the next Attorney General is out to get Finney...whether he's broken the law or not. McGarrett has already investigated Finney and knows he's innocent, but no one seems to be listening and a state senate investigation is going full speed ahead.

To help his case, the hot-shot has done his best to twist and break the law. First, he arranges for a fake assassination attempt on his life. Next, he tries to frame McGarrett for accepting a bribe and ultimately he tries to make it look like McGarrett and Finney have an illegal partnership--with McGarrett getting bribes from Finney. In each case, the trap fails. And yet, the case pushes forward--even against McGarrett's recommendations.

A wild card is thrown in along the way. Suddenly someone thinks that IF Finney talks to the investigating committee, bad things will happen. So, an assassination is sent from the mainland and he means business.

Can the assassination be foiled and can the politically ambitious lawyer be stopped before it's too late? See for yourself.

This is a very good episode--well written, very exciting and with nice acting. Good stuff.
